Free Download Physical Chemistry for the Life Sciences (second edition) written by Peter Atkins (Professor of Chemistry, Oxford University) and Julio de Paula (Professor of Chemistry, Lewis & Clark College) and published by W. H. Freeman and Company, New York in 2011.
The second edition of this text—like the first edition—seeks to present all the material required for a course in physical chemistry for students of the life sciences, including biology and biochemistry. Provided the foundations and biological applications of thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum theory, and molecular spectroscopy.
According to authors, “The text is characterized by a variety of pedagogical devices, most of them directed toward helping with the mathematics that must remain an intrinsic part of physical chemistry. One such new device is the Mathematical toolkit, a boxed section that—as we explain in more detail in the ‘About the book’ section below—
reviews concepts of mathematics just where they are needed in the text.”
